Orange You Glad I Didn't Say Banana?

Citrus hues like lemon, orange and lime give a jolt of color to Spring fashion. Afraid of looking like a Fanta girl? Just pick a hue that works with your skintone (fake tan, anyone?) and accessorize with neutrals. Here's a tart little tunic to get your taste buds going. Refreshing!

Subversive Jewelry for Target

Target is partnering with renowned jewelry designer Justin Giunta to launch a limited-edition accessories collection, Subversive for Target. The second jewelry launch in a series of limited-time-only accessories designers (following Dominique Cohen, which is on mad clearance right now), the Subversive collection will be available at select Target stores nationwide and at March 23 through July 20, 2008. Prices range from $14.99 to $59.99.

I think I love this collection...but it's too pricey! No way I'm paying $60 for a necklace from Target. But patience is a virtue, and I can certainly wait until it goes on sale. But what about you? Will you be pouncing on this collection when it hits stores? (Click the thumbs to see full-size pics)
